The Brown Parcel
A father gives his daughter a mysterious inheritance.
By Kari Hesthamar for NRK (2003)

Cesilie’s family have wrapped their secrets in a brown parcel. Her father gave her the parcel ten years ago – asking her not to open it until two years after her mother dies. Ten years later, and almost two years after her mother has passed away, Cesilie is ready to see what’s inside.

The Brown Parcel (Den Brune Pakken) was made by Kari Hesthamar. The technical direction was by Kåre Johan Lund and the coach was Berit Hedemann. It won the Prix Europa in 2004.
